CRUISING SAILBOATS FOR SALE

A cruising sailboat is the perfect escape for two to four people to get out on the water and explore coasts and islands for a week or so at a time. This purpose has a few limiting characteristics.

One of the biggest limiting factors is the boat’s size. The sailboat needs to be big enough to accommodate everyone comfortable, but still small enough for a limited number of people onboard to handle. The sweet spot in the size is about 40 feet.

A 40- to 50-footer is also stable enough to handle a rough sea. Even though a cruising sailboat is typically intended for short duration trips along the coast, there may be times when a bit more stability is appreciated. Perhaps it’s a crossing to an out island or an unexpected storm, but it’s better to have a bit more space and stability than not.

A cruising sailboat wouldn’t be comfortable for a long-distance cruise but sometimes it’s more important to buy the right boat for the intended purpose rather than just a large boat.
